Boulder Opal Jewelry

One of the more valuable forms of opal, Boulder opal can exhibit many different colors making it supremely unique in style. The range of spectral colors can depend on the age and size of the stone, as well as where it's found or mined. Boulder opal is distantly related to Australia’s black opal, even though it's significantly rarer and harder to find.

Even though Boulder Opal is found in Australia, it only accounts for less than 4% of the total annual yield of black opal from the country. Opel is most commonly found in Australia, who accounts for over 95% of the world's entire supply of opal stones. Boulder opal was discovered in Western Australia and is still found in this region to varying success. 

What makes Boulder opal so special is the traces of ironstone, which give the opal it's unique name. The ironstone appears as fissures and veins in the stone, which can give it a unique appearance. Opal miners must remove the embedded opal from the ironstone, a process which leaves some traces of matrix and gives the Boulder Opal its unique flair. 

Popular in necklaces and custom set rings, Boulder Opal is typically harder and denser than traditional opal. Common in pendants and known to extend energy that can heal or promote energy, the Boulder Opal is also the birth stone of October.
